Using Word’s Find and Replace to turn a comma series into a list

by | Sep 23, 2015

Microsoft Word’s Advanced Find and Replace feature can do WAY more than just replace one word with another one.

In this video, I show you how to replace a list of items separated by commas, and turn it into a numbered list running down the page. For example, you could take this:

True, False, It depends

…and turn it into…

  1. True
  2. False
  3. It Depends

…without having to press Enter between each item!
